Export to Band In A Box

• Jan 25, 2009 - 15:37

I am considering purchasing a copy of Band In A Box software (music accompaniment). Does anyone have any experience exporting music in lead sheet notation (melody + chord symbols) from MuseScore to Band In A Box? Band In A Box does not have MusicXML import, but can read MIDI files. The important issue here is exporting the chord symbols accurately from MuseScore to Band In A Box.

Any feedback, thoughts or ideas would be appreciated.

Band in a box does export chord names in MIDI but it uses non standard meta events for that. Read more at http://www.pgmusic.com/techfaq14.htm#105 With some reverse engineering, it's possible to develop export for MuseScore which does export chord names.

Alternatively, ask on the Biab forum to add musicXML support in their next release.
